Dedication 



Annually the Acorn, with a sense of appropriate pride, 
dedicates its luimerable pages to persons of outstanding merit 
who have contributed to the ever-growing success of Oakwood. 
This year, to honor one who through her friendly manners, 
high standards, charm of personality, understanding, and 
sincere devotion has won an irreplaceable spot in the hearts of 
all ; we do respectfully dedicate this book. 
Miss N. E. Burrell, head of the Department of Elementary 
Education, has for 15 years rendered untiring services to the 
cause of learning here at Oakwood College. The lives of her 
students are enriched and inspired by the profoundness of her 
instruction and the warmth of her friendship and love. They 
are led into deep recesses of knowledge and are led into a 
closer relationship with their Maker. 

With keen admiration of one who has well merited genuine 
love and respect, we esteem it an honor to dedicate to 
Miss N. E. Burrell this Acorn of 1953.

The "grand uniffue'" of Oakwood is its adnunistrative staff; it 
is the embodiment of the principles ol success. Using as a 
slogan, "Plan your work and work out your plan," this body 
successfully pursues the outlining of a master plan for the 
three-fold development of the student ])ody. 
As the master pilot directs the sea-worn ship safely into 
harbor, as time reveals the end and gives l)irth to the beginning 
of all things, so Oakwood's administrative staff anticipates 
and attends her most urgent exigency.

PRESIDENT 

F. L. PETERSON 



President's Message 

In these uncertain times, there is one thing certain; there will be a future, and Oakwood College is 

prepared to help young men and women prepare for the future and to serve their God and their country to 

the best of their ability. 

If ever there was a time when youth needed to be fortified and safeguarded by a God-centered education. 

that time is now. Ninety-four per cent of our young delinquents are said to be between the ages of ten and 

seventeen, and the prediction is that less than ten years hence there may be as many as two million child 

delinquents. 

Reverence for God and loyalty to truth are the principles upon which Christian education is based. It 

is the priceless privilege of Oakwood College students to think, to act. and to live in harmony with the 

highest and best. 

The College was founded in an atmosphere that was distinctively Christian, to prepare youth for Christian 

service, and today it is being nurtured and developed in that same climate and for the same purpose. 

Some of you have reached the end of your sojourn at the college; you have fulfilled the requirements for 

graduation, and you are entering a big world filled with material blessings, but where there is a great need 

of the spiritual touch. May you ever have the passion to serve and enjoy the thrill of living a great life 

as you cooperate with Christ, your Master Guide, in the work of saving the lost. ^ "■•

Religion 



"He who with sincere and teachable spirit 
studies God's word, seeking to comprehend 
its truths, will be brought in touch with its 
Author; and, except by his own choice, there is 
no limit to the possibilities of his development." 
Realizing this, the department of religion en- 
deavors through consecrated teachers, to inspire 
and instill in the mind of the student the principles 
of truth which are high as the heaven and com- 
pass eternity, that they may go forth as teachers, 
evangelists, and Bible Instructors to quicken the 
minds, and uplift the souls of perishing mankind.

History 



History can always be traced back to some 
similar event. In its noblest sense, it reveals the 
workings of Divine Providence, and the su- 
premacy of the Moral Law. 

To keep these salient facts ever before us, the 
head of the History Department. Dean 0. B. Ed- 
wards, invites us to "take five."

Literature and poetry are language phenomena — modes of ex- 
pression. Whether to teach, preach, or simply thrill; to paint, in- 
form, or spellbind, it contains the most beautiful expression of 
thought and emotion of mankind. The English Department under- 
takes to develop within the student an appreciation for the best 
in literature and perfect the techniques of the written and spoken 
language — the mother tongue. English.

Classes and Study 



"What a sculpture is to a block of marble, 
education is to the soul." 

— Addison 



Half polished and half learned, the student comes to seek 
knowledge, culture, and skill. He pauses at Oakwood's "Pierian 
Springs" to imbibe some of the positive forces — trudi, obedience, 
honor, integrity and purity which come from true learning; to cure 
such maladies of the mind that might be remedied by diligent 
study. Bible for the spirit, science for tiuth, mathematics for 
])recision, English and rhetoric for reason and comraunicationj 
history for knowledge, and art and music for refinement of tastes. 



"'Tis education forms the conmion mind; 
Just as the twig is bent the tree is inclined." 

— Pope

Library 



The new W. H. Green Memorial Library officially opened on 
January 6, and the students eagerly explored its rooms and stacks 
in quest of the spoils of knowledge. 

The new library might very well be styled the cultural center of the 
campus. There, surrounded by a sea of blond-oak chairs and 50 
tables and choice mahogany-stained book shelves, the seeker of 
knowledge reaps the rewards of dilligence.

To God he goes in simple faith, at morn, at noon, at night. Though

A Week of Prayer 

In compassionate, sincere, and command- 
ing tones a dynamic voice could be heard 
ringing down through centuries — "Come 
unto me" — and the students of Oakwood 
heard that voice of the master, and came for 
pardon from sin and power to overcome that 
they might live the victorious life. 

The religious emphasis week was one of 
heart-searching, of fasting and prayer. When 
the united prayers of the Oakwood circle 
went up like a mighty battering-ram against 
the gates of heaven, the gates opened and

In earnestness the students seek counsel; 
they desire to know how to find salvation. 
To the earnest seeker God has promised 
"Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst 
after righteousness for they shall be filled.''

HereThey Relax 

For relaxation of body and mind, for rej iivination of spirit, for 
. cultivation of appreciation for the best in music and art, for 

participation and social education a refreshing round of cultural, 
social and physical activities is plan)ied. The activity program is 
calculated to meet every need of the individual student. 
The gamut of campus activities include lyceum and lecture course 
immbers, musicals, programs and activities planned by clubs and 
organizations ; other mirthful diversions such as bonfires, hikes, 
skating, marching and games are gleefully hailed by the student.

"Blessed is he who has found his work; let him ask no other 

blessedness." . . -■ , 

— Carlyle 

Success ill any endeavor is proportionate to the work done, 
man's fortunes are indeed according to his pains. As a part of a 
Christian education the student is to learn industry and thrift. 

As a relaxation from study, exercise of the body, and a means 
financial gain the student finds employment in industrial units 
and departments about the campus. 

Here he spends several hours developing skill in labor; here he 
earns dollars and "sense" as he obtains his education.

PrineipaPs Message 



In these very critical hours of earth's his- 
tory, our youth are confronted with issues of 
sireat significance — issues that challenge the 
thinking and wisdom of the aged and ex- 
perienced. 

To shield the youth of our time against the 
insidious and soul destroying influences that 
have infiltrated into every area of life, the 
Creator has provided a hnlwark and sure de- 



fense through the revelation of His Divine 
Plan of Education. This plan calls for the 
estahlishment of schools and colleges which 
subscribe to a Christ-centered philosophy of 
education — a philosophy which has to do 
with the whole period of existence possible 
to man. It is further designed to effect a har- 
monious development of one's physical, 
mental, and spiritual powers, and to prepare
